No drugs America has been a big help in the community providing families with free information on the danger of drug use to help protect our youth from using drugs. They do events to encourage a drug free lifestyle. I personally have never used drugs because of no drugs America showing me the consequences of doing drugs. No drugs America is a great organization with a great cause. Stopping drug use before it starts. Prevention is the best treatment.

No drugs of America has been great for the community. It helps give us and most importantly our youth awareness of drugs and alcohol use. I think this non profit organization has made a positive impact in the high desert and hope to see it expand to other counties.

Last year was my first year volunteering with No Drugs of America. It was such a great experience! It was nice to see the community come together and learn about the effects of drugs and alcohol. It was good to see so many youth participating and listening to this important information. Can’t wait for next years No Drug of America day!

I have worked with NoDrugs America, mostly shooting videos for them for our TV station KVVB TV. I also gave some of my own talents doing a PR Video for them. They demonstrate to kids that there are many avenues of fun beside the drug route. I have no stats, but I feel Frank and his friends have made a positive influence on some of the kids . With marijuana becoming legal In 2018, it is on the same level society acceptance as alcohol.. The organization is not just talking of the evil of illegal drugs but educating these precious young people about the dangers of alcohol and marijuana. Blessings to the good people in No Drugs America-we need more like them-keep up the good work.

When I lost someone I loved to drugs, I realized I had to do something to educate children about the dangers of using drugs. I decided to use my own money to make a Public Service Announcement and after a long search, met Frank Kelly, the founder of No Drugs America who convinced me his nonprofit was one that makes a difference in a child's life. Frank has one goal - to keep kids off drugs and he does it in many ways including, going into school, talking to the children starting in elementary school and having drug free family oriented events! He succeeds because he cares! And the children know he cares! This is a nonprofit that works because it goes "one on one" with kids to keep them on track and lets them know they have worth, they have something to offer, and that they are loved! I was asked to be the celebrity guest at his annual NO DRUGS AMERICA Family Day Event and after attending once, I'm hooked. I've watched it grow into an event where families come together in the park to share an incredibly bonding, positive experience with games, face painting, police, firemen, booths with educational materials, food, fun, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, woodworking projects and amazing raffles! Gift baskets and many BIKES are given away to the children at each event! I donate a bike every year now, and believe their goal is to give 30-50 bikes in the future. I've watched these children return every year. They get up on stage and dance and sing and announce proudly, on the top of their lungs, I NEED NO DRUGS! I watch these children grow! Each year, they return healthy, happy, more confident and drug free! They develop positive self images! I have tears in my eyes at the end of every NO DRUGS AMERICA FAMILY DAY EVENT! Frank Kelly has made me so proud to be a part of such an amazing origanization!
